WHAT I LIKED

The options of food and housing are extremely diverse for multi-cultural students. Being on the Liberty University Senate within the Student Government Association, I constantly see a desire to improve campus life for all students regardless of background. The only negative aspect that I have found from being a residential student is the limited parking opportunities.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The parking lots on campus can be rather limited, and everything is quite a walk from one class to the next. There are some rather strict dress code policies within the gyms and swimming areas along with rather early curfews on some nights.

WHAT I LIKED

As an online student, my knowledge of the campus is not as diverse and well-rated from my perspective. However, I can attest to the online experience. I have complete peace that God led me in the right direction by choosing Liberty University. I would recommend this university to anyone with a passion for learning.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

You do not have to graduate by a certain date/year. Being an online student you can go at your own pace! Trust God's timing and be aware that your grades are only temporary. Focus on your dream and do not lose sight of why you are attending university.

WHAT I LIKED

I looked at nearly a dozen colleges, but none of them had such an amazing writing program as Liberty. LU offers an entire degree devoted to creative writing, not just an English degree with one or two creative writing courses thrown in. The campus is absolutely stunning, and there were so many opportunities to socialize and meet new people. I will live the rest of my life proud of being a part of such a phenomenal university.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

While this is a Christian University, not all the students and faculty are picture-perfect Christians. Yes, the curriculums and convocations are faith-based but don't be expecting perfect people everywhere you look.

WHAT I LIKED

To be completely honest, I have taken my courses online. Unfortunately, I cannot assess the dining and can only comment on the videos I have seen of the campus. However, I can say that the staff in every department has been more than helpful and very friendly. They take the time to help answer any questions and go above and beyond breaking down the options for you. The professors have taken the time to speak with me verbally to help answer all my questions and concerns, which for me was a huge deal.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

To be honest, there is nothing that I can complain about.

WHAT I LIKED

The school has a lot of facilities to utilize, there is a pretty big gym for working out, they have exercise classes for busy folks, and their services are very good as well. The university has a good School of Business, that hosts a lot of events to help its students land internships and jobs.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food court is not for me. My body does not sit right with the food there.
